Finance isn’t just about developing technology with a few rules and regulations, it’s about the complex interactions between people and systems and the events that have helped shape the global economy over the past decade. It’s also a domain of contradictions. In this talk, Dr. Jamie Allsop will look at the problem of finance, where we are today, how we got here and how we might make sense of it all.

Recently, we talked with David Brear about the seemingly inevitable clash between FinTech and the banking industry, his best guess at the industry’s next step, and what exactly happens if banks don’t change with the times.
We’re making an unexpected stop today while sailing the Functional Sea. All haul ashore for some liberty on Eta Island! We talked to Rahul Muttineni, CTO at TypeLead and the creator of the Eta programming language about its advantages and disadvantages, its core principles, and more.
In this talk, Mark Rendle, founder and CEO of RendleLabs will share the challenges he encountered when refactoring an ASP.NET/IIS monolith to composable polyglot Docker-hosted mini-services, the things he learned along the way and the benefits he gained.
We’re still sailing the Dynamic Sea — you’ve already met Gosu and Golo so now it’s time to meet Jython, the island where Java sailors get seduced by Python. We talked to Frank Wierzbicki, Jython Project Lead about its advantages and disadvantages, its core principles and more.
Finding the island of Gosu is not an easy thing to do. According to the legends of the Pirates of the JVM, the mystical island of Gosu is a chameleon when it comes to staying in one lane. What makes Gosu so unique? Is it really a *simple* JVM language? We talked to Scott McKinney, the language’s father, about its advantages and disadvantages, its core principles and more.
We’ve been really enjoying JAX DevOps in London this week. Stefanos Zachariadis, one of our speakers, was kind enough to sit down and answer a few questions about the importance of data testing, how to keep end users from getting bugs, and why you should invest in a data “cleanser”.
JAX DevOps day one: the mechanical sympathy between Docker and Java, tips that might come in handy when dealing with containers and reasons why you should [or shouldn’t] containerize an existing (monolithic) app.
When we launched the Pirates of the JVM series, we promised we would put the spotlight on each and every programming language in the JVM universe so here we go. Our next port of call – Frege! We talked to Ingo Wechsung, the inventor of Frege, about the advantages and disadvantages of this language, its core principles and more.
Readers seemed to be diving deep into the archives of JAXenter this month. Our top favorites included how to build a REST API, the all new Angular 4, and the evergreen NetBeans or IntelliJ debate.
The challenging environment of digital disruption is impacting the banks, software deployment cycles must speed up in response to this. In this session, Matt Saunders explains why containerisation, specifically implemented via the Docker Datacenter toolchain is a key tool in solving this dichotomy.
Unleashing the extreme power of today’s CPUs with a stream-oriented architecture! Marcus Gründler’ JAX Finance session will show you how to achieve speed improvements of a factor of 100-200 times compared to classic object-oriented design.
When we launched the Pirates of the JVM series, we promised we would put the spotlight on each and every programming language in the JVM universe so here we go. Next stop: Xtend. We talked to Sven Efftinge, co-founder at TypeFox and project lead of Eclipse Xtend about the advantages and disadvantages of this language, its core principles and more.
